Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing

Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing is a classic program to learn touch typing. These are my observations based on the Platinum 20 version of this software.

All in all, I found that this was the only program with which I was able to learn to touch type correctly, especially the numbers and special characters. The key to all that was the animated display of finger placement. The downside of this program was how limited it was in its teaching capability once I reached a decent speed.
